Most Difficult School Grades

The Top Ten

1 7th grade

I am currently in 7th grade, they spoon feed you and act like middle school is going to be easy in 6th grade. Over the summer some drama starts and carries on into 7th grade. To make things worse, the teachers that you liked last year became worse and the bad teachers get even worse. The work becomes a lot harder and they expect you to do it in little time. They don't grade anything either to make life worse. You then become depressed and stressed out, your probably also going through puberty at this point. The teachers make everything seem easy when they really just want to sit on you. Good Luck 6th graders who are going to 7th grade!

7th grade in my opinion is the hardest. In 6th grade they treat you like a baby because it is the first year of middle school but when you get to 7th grade they expect you to know EVERYTHING! Everything changes, you have a test every week and so much homework that you sleep at 11:00 because you also have sports! The tests are overall very hard and they are worth not a lot of points that cause you to get a D even if you miss 4. 7th grade is also hard because the tests are very hard and they give you like a week to study for 3 tests and finish a project. This is my opinion and if people disagree that is okay because they go to a different school and all schools are different. Good Luck to incoming 7th graders!

It packs you with homework and drama because in 6th grade they sort of baby you because its your first year of middle school. Once 7th grade comes they pack you with daily homework and HUGE projects that could make your grade. It's a lot to deal with with work itself but then drama starts to linger around. You get caught in drama because you guys are not the 8th grade big ones yet that are going to leave to highschool next year so you are the next top dogs at the school. It may be a tough year but if you focus and myob then you will probably survive haha. Good Luck!

I'm in 7th grade right now and is so hard because homework is too hard and parents can help you. Mean teachers and quizzes every week. No one understands what I going through and the Teacher thinks you know everything. So much Drama every single day.

2 11th grade

"Abandon all hope, ye who enter here"

For me, it was relatively easy. Maybe because I took easier classes. I'd consider that grade easy-medium. - NickelodeonYesAddminNo

Stress for college starts picking up and you have to recover from all of you past mistakes throughout high school. Socially it's atrocious because all the students of your class are either suffering early senioritis or disgustingly stressed and competitive. It's also when you're almost an adult, but you still have to deal with being treated as a teenager who thinks they know everything but are actually too dumb to function. It's the worse year because of pressure academically: socially, and mentally.

11th grade has to be the hardest grade because it is what determines your class rank when you graduate and your ACT and SAT scores start to become recognized, as well as colleges looking at your grades before admission. This makes 11th grade harder than 12th because generally by 12th grade, you should have already gotten into the college you wanted to.

3 8th grade

You're awkward, no one likes you, homework takes forever, good grades are the only thing that matter, you're stressed about high school, IT SUCKS. In 7th grade, the grades just don't matter as much.

I am in 8th grade currently and it is the hardest year I've had so far. We have about four tests every week, and they are very hard to get good grades on or even pass. One grade in my tech class took me down from a 96 to an 82 and I have been trying to pull it up for about a month. I'm at a 88 now and it has taken me so many 100s and so much work to pull it up.

Last year of middle school so you know what that means... Teachers pounding you with homework, and Tests/Quizzes to prep you for your Freshman year.

Tons of homework and big projects and tests and quizzes it is way too stressful

4 10th grade

I'm having constant projects and I haven't had a single break since the beginning of the year, I just finished a group project and so far we've had around 4 the entire year. I have tests in almost all of my classes. For some reason a book report in health which has no reason to be there. And constant tests and vocabulary. I didn't have a fall break, and I got sick due to staying up to a straight 24 hours with no break only doing homework. I then had an allergic reaction and this past thanksgiving break, I've had to read near 50+ pages every single day of this book for health.

I would like to describe 10th grade in one word which is "horrible". I really feel pissed off in 10th because I can't have the fun which I want to. I am always burdened with homeworks in each and every subject as well as tremendous amounts of projects to finish within a limited time frame. The worst part is that the teachers can't lessen the homework for even one day. 10th grade SUCKS!

I have to spend at least five hours doing homework every night and the weekends are even worse. I had a break off from school for one week and I spent the entire break doing homework. On each day of the break I worked for at least ten hours.

I also took US History when I was in the 10th grade. Most of it wasn't too hard for me, except the parts where I had to write a paper on a specific topic. - creed99

5 9th grade

Freshman year is basically every year in high school but the hardest thing for everybody is the transition because in our middle school you didn't have to do the homework and you would still pass ( I didn't do my homework at all for the last 5 months and ended up with a 3.4) and every year is the same amount of homework just that it's harder, and there are a lot more projects that you have to do

Loads of upperclassmen hate Freshman and its a hard transition from middle school so grades drop a ton.

Its really hard to transition from top dog at the middle school, to a freshman target in high school. In my opinion after 9th you are used of the rules of high school and how everything works.

9th grade was so bad I barley passed my classes

6 12th grade

This should be #1. I had several anxiety attacks during my senior year of high school. - railfan99

The hardest grade ever! So hard, I'm not even in this grade.

You have to apply for colleges which is a pain

It seems hard, but I'm not that old.

7 6th grade

6th Grade is a mix between hard and easy. One day it's the most stressful thing in the world, another day it isn't. Math- easy English-medium Science- medium Spanish-hard Piano- easy History- medium and easy

As a 6th grader, I can speak that 6th grade is a breeze for me. No homework, no overly hard work, and nice teachers. My only worry was bullies and drama as in this grade children start to mature from children to adults, so hormones and such change and emotions change. That was my only complaint, though. Go Oaklawn!

6th grade was hard because my school only gives scholarships to people who got all A+'s each semester in 3rd-5th grades. I am very smart for my age so I got accepted in, over the summer we had to read 200 books with 300 or more pages and if you did not read those books you would have to spend 8 hours after school cleaning the school from top to bottom. Luckily, I am quick reader, so I finished reading the books 2 weeks before school started. There is also an elementary school but it is not for the advanced kids, then if you get A+'s in all subjects in grades 3-5 you get to move on the middle school and high school. I went to Crockett Elementary School before middle school so I was not prepared for a 40,000 dollar a year school. Apparently the school that I went to in 6th grade checked every single kid in the county's grades when they were in 3rd grade just to see if they were in the running, then they would check the kids who got all A+'s in 3rd grade for each semester would check the ...more

The adjustment from elementary to middle was rough for me. Learning a new environment really took a long time to adjust to, let alone the incline of work.

8 5th grade

God damn I hate 5th grade we have this book report we have to do over Christmas break I mean come on why can't I just chill and have a good time but hell no. Also there's so much drama over estupito stuff like I don't have time for drama. Also there are straight up weird people ngl. I have 5 more months until my misery ends. I wish I could burn 5th grade but that's physically I'm possible. When I leave 5th grade I will be so much happier.

The sheer difference between 5th and 4th grade made me slip up and have grades fall. In the first month my math grade was an 83, and all prior grades were 90+ the whole year.

It's so hard 5th grade is one of the worst grades, it's HELL and stuff and the homework is just way too hard and sometimes the Social studies teacher is way too strict, I want to end this misery >:(

I'm in 5th grade and its not that hard. honestly, I think 6th grade will be harder.

9 3rd grade

It's Hard I hated it I felt so lonely although my grades are still good expect all of my friends were in different classes and I got into fights it was terrible

3rd graders are evil. And don't say u wernt because you probably were

Cough cough we had this nosy teacher in yr 4 (3rd grade) and also she sucked

Yes, 3rd grade was the hardest for me. back then in third grade, I was hanging with the wrong crowd, so that lowered my grades, and my mom would work late so I had to stay with my brother and at the time he was like 2 or 3, but thank God somehow I got a 4 on both reading and math

10 1st grade

Yea agreed about turd graders. Also, my life just wasn't very good then! - happytobeherexx

I know this is a most hardest grade list but I have to say it:
My class itself wasn't hard, it was mostly my teacher, she was so mean. For example, in the class if we did something bad, our partents would be called. Anyway while I was reading a book, I stopped to buckle my shoe back up. And guess what happened? My teacher said she was gonna have to call my partents.
So that was a GREAT day! :(

Stuff I learned in first grade:
A bunch of other pointless math problems
How to make an A
And of course, third graders are mean.

They are just learning to read. Yet they are expected to take all the things they have learned, pull them together to read, comprehend and then be able to write about it independently.

The Contenders

11 4th grade

4th grade is really hard but I have an amazing teacher! I still don't get problem s on Khon Academy like this 9 divided by 15.

4th grade sucked but I met the CUTEST boy ever! I might be 9 but it just sucked not all but mostly all the HOMEWORK

I was so sad when I was ending the 4th grade because my teacher was awesome.

I am in 4th grade I don't get lots of homeowork and my teacher (s ) is great _-_

12 Kindergarten

Kindergarten is so easy, you just do very simple schoolwork, and you only get 1 page of homework, or none at all. Also, kindergarten kids at my school were really sweet and nice (I don't know about other schools) - Flowerfriend4407

This is the only item that should be taken off this list. Kindergarten is the easiest grade. Well for me. - EpicJake

Difficult because they are so young and have short attention spans, but they are also amazing kids, But if you're not a very patient person this is not the grade for you

This shouldn't be on the list but I see what is meant. If you didn't go to pre school especially, being little and knowing nothing this can be tough.

13 13th grade

This should be higher, I mean, 13th grade is one of the highest, in my year 6 class, (I am English) they have to learn algebra. But it’s funny that 13th grade is at 13th lol

According to Wikipedia, a TOTALLY reliable source, 13th grade in some places is senior year of high school. - MaxAurelius

It's definitely hard to pass a grade that doesn't exist

Guess you could call freshman year of college 13th Grade - PackFan2005

14 2nd grade

Eh, I'm in 6th grade now and for me 2nd grade was only mildly hard, but it was also pretty fun. - Flowerfriend4407

I voted this and how is KINDERGARTEN harder? - BlueBobYT

What this is the best grade is you have my teacher she adds fun stuff into school like pizza and movies etc. she makes school more fun than what you are thinking anyway we have M.M Monday's and F and F Friday's with math stuff I like it and instead of friday we take spelling tests on Thursday and her fridays are either boring finish work fridays or super fun fridays she is the best teacher to have - mathguy37

NaH it's SIMPLE...! - AlphaQ

It's only simple because you're like between 5th-College years. This is when we were back in this grade, so this grade isn't meant for you. - TeamRocket747

15 Preschool

Its like sioi hard! I'm 5 and I was preschool Kidd last year. Liek we had 2 do super hard stuff like play with toys and draw picture!
(In case you couldn't tell, this was sarcasm, I am 11 and in 6th grade and preschool is the easiest thing ever) - Flowerfriend4407

All I remember was that the teacher was evil to me and the others (mostly me) because the kids were learning to speak and I was-it's long ago I cannot remember anything. - hoppingicon

! I just finished preschool and it was the hardest thing ever! I can't believe I actually survived it! Like, we literally had to sit there and play with toys all day!

Pree scool is so hard becas u haf too sit duwn and do a piktur and ten do a game wit toys!
